Little Pasture* says: “Stacey Campfield recently spoke before a group Aunt B. says is a hate group.”
I just want to clarify. I’ve been giving this some thought and I think that maybe white supremacy is not quite the right phrase in the case of these anti-immigration groups. I don’t know. LP’s got me thinking of it because I’m kind of annoyed by his typification of my description of these groups as “hate” groups. I don’t think TN-RIP or T-FIRE are hate groups. They’re not the Klan or the Skinheads.
And the more I think about it, the more I think that they’re not exactly white supremacists either. I mean, yes, clearly it’s obvious to outsiders that they think that white Americans are better than non-white non-Americans–hence the supremacy.
But clearly, as well, they don’t understand what they’re doing as advancing white supremacy. And so I’m not sure that it’s entirely useful
I mean, I think there’s a spectrum of ideas here and that what they want to do is protect white hegemony.
And that really annoys me because hegemony is one of my least favorite words ever and here they’ve gone and given me a reasonable and practical reason to regularly use it.
Damn you, white hegemonists, damn you!
*For you new readers, I try not to use Little Pasture’s immigrant name out of respect for his paleoconservative nonsense.
